A Half Century With Sixguns
Smith & Wessons
The year was 1955. The first advisers are sent to Vietnam, Churchill resigns as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and a bomb explodes on Flight 629 killing everyone aboard. Disneyland opens, Gunsmoke begins its long reign on TV and Elmer Keith writes Sixguns. This is also a year for great guns: Colt introduces the .357 Magnum Python, Smith & Wesson comes forth with the .357 Combat Magnum, the .45 ACP 1955 Target and in the last days of December, the .44 Magnum arrives. I had just started my senior year in high school and could only dream about sixguns.
